PLANTATION MELODIES.                         67
Dp money I hab made, I keep; And when I'm dead and fast asl-eep, My Dina she will berry me Wid Rosa dear, ob Tennessee.
Chorus. Rosa dear, Rosa dear, &c.
Julia Green
The music, with piano-forte accompaniment, published by
Wm. Vanderbeck, New York.
Oh! I hab been from norf to souf,
And darkey gals I've seen; But none did eber seem to me
So sweet as Julia Green! She dances and she skips about,
And cuts de pigeon wing; And, oh ! it seems such melody,
When she begins to sing!
Chorus. Oh! I hab been from norf to soisf? And darkey gals I've seen*, But none did eber seem to mo So sweet as Julia Green I
I've sat and watch'd de lubly moon Go sliding down the sky;
And ebery little twinkling star Seem'd Julia's shinin' eye.
